NWRDC Deploys Sanrad

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- SANRAD, Inc., a leading supplier of Storage Area Network (SAN) connectivity and management solutions, today announced Northwest Regional Data Center (NWRDC), Florida's leading computing data center for educational and governmental communities, has deployed six SANRAD V-Switches to manage growing volumes of archived data and protect against loss.

NWRDC provides data security, accessibility and connectivity services to more than 80 Florida-based customers, including K-20 educational facilities, major research universities and local governments. With a growing customer base and increasing amounts of data to protect, NWRDC was facing a mounting disaster recovery risk and dealing with a manual off-site storage process for archive tapes that was cumbersome and difficult to manage.

"With more than 130 terabytes of customer data on archive tapes, and the amount of data under our control continuing to grow, we needed a solution that could be easily managed while delivering cost-effective support for our storage needs -- not just today, but long into the future," said Mikal Haney, software support manager, NWRDC. "The open architecture of the SANRAD V-Switch and its ability to efficiently and automatically move data stood out among other solutions we considered."
